BRILLIANT IN COLORS PAN-AMERICAN EXPOSITION WILL GLOW WITH WONDERFUL RADIANCE. Electrical Illuminations aid Other Feature In Which Buffalo's Fair Will F.zeel All Former Enterprises of This Description. Even tbe BuiTalonian cannot compre hend the exquisite character of the great Exposition be is building. Is it any wonder, then, that tbe distant na tive still asks what it is to be? Indeed It is to be everything that is graceful, harmonious and beautiful. Form and color will Join their wonderful force to please the eye and delight tbe sense. THB ELECTRIC TOWIR. "Magnificent" is not too strong a word to express tbe character of the com pleted work. lie is a man of dull imag ination who. now visiting the grounds, cannot picture in some degree the come liness and stateliness of tbe finished enterprise. Tbe Pan-American Exposition is in tended to be In every way an artistic triumph. From the very beginning it has been the purpose of those who have been Intrusted with the making of this Exposition to present to the world the most artistic creation ever conceived for a like purpose. The ar rangement of the buildings, the style of architecture, the decorative work, the embellishment of tbe grounds and the electrical illumination are some of the features that will stand out promi nently in tbe Exposition picture. There are 33 acres in tbe courts around which stand the principal Exposition buildings. While the whole Exposi tion plot of 350 acres will be as beauti ful as nature, with the r.rtistic help of man. can make it, the several courts will be the particular center for formal decorative work. The courts are ar ranged in tbe form of a cross, tbe north and south courts bearing tbe names of Court of Fountains, Plaza, Fore Court and Approach and being nearly 3.000 feet in extreme length. Tbe Transverse Court is known as the Esplanade and is l.TOO feet from east to west. Two subordinate courts open into the Esplanade, known as tbe Court of Lilies and Court of Cypresses. Tbe combined area of these courts is approximately two and a half times tbe area of the courts at tbe World's Columbian Exposition and for this rea son gives a far greater opportunity for artistic treatment. It has been said of this Exposition that it would outrival all former enter prises in a number of important fea tures. The first of these Is in tbe court settings just described. Tbe second Is in tbe plastic ornamentation of buildings and tbe elaborate use of sculpture for decorative purposes. As a third may be mentioned the hydraul ic and fountain effects. These are of a most elaborate character and are to be seen in all of the courts. A fourth feature is the horticultural dec orative work. Sunken gardens and formal floral ornamentation will be em ployed at every point where tbe bright colors of foliage and flowers will add to tbe beauty of the scene. As a fifth feature may be noted the color decora tion of the buildings. This is a very elaborate undertaking, the result of mature study upon tbe part of tbe best mural painters of the world. Consid ered a very difficult, if not embar rassing, problem at first, it has been worked out by patient study until re sults very pleasing and happy have been achieved. A sixth point of excel lence will be the electrical illumina tion of all tbe courts. Then the bril liance of the gardens and the radiant beauty of tbe buildings will be height ened by the glow of 200.000 electric lamps arranged with artistic concep tion and illuminating with fantastic hues tbe numberless fountains and pools and turning the scene Into one of unrivaled splendor. The style of architecture Is what Is described as a free adaptation of the Spanish renaissance. It is particularly appropriate for the purposes of an Exposition since It gives opportunity for the employment of many architec tural features of a festive character. Thus the visitor may see many lofty towers and lanterns, graceful domes and minarets, airy pavilions and other decorative work that will produce a sky line free from any suggestions of monotony or severity. Tbe Electric Tower, standing In a broad pool between tbe Court of Foun tains and the Plaza, Is to be the center piece for electrical illumination. This tower la 80 feet square and 375 feet high, with circular wings curving from the east and west sides to the south ward and forming a semicircular space In which are to be many beautiful fountain features. From the southern face of the Tower a cascade will gush from a niche, 70 feet from tbe ground, and fail upon a terraced base. At night this cascade and tbe fountains and pools will be Illuminated in fantastic colors. Floating lights upon all the pools will form an interesting feature f the general scheme of Illumination. I Some SO or uiore American sculptors of renown are at work upon the deco rative groups which are to have a place at this Exposition. These are to be nearly all original productions under the master direction of Karl Bitter. It will be the most elaborate use of decorative sculpture ever under taken at an Exposition, there being more than 125 groups. These will adorn the fountains, bridges, entrances to buildings and other salient points. Besides the pools and fountains, with in the several courts will be a grand and stately canal which will surround the entire group of buildings. In the southern reaches of this canal are artificial bodies of water known as the Mirror Lakes, from which lagoons ex tend In several directions, thickly set with aquatic plants of rare species. In addition to the sunken gardens and other floral features of tbe courts will be the horticultural exhibits in the southern part of tbe grounds. These will consist of several acres of beds of the finest productions of the best nurs eries and greenhouses of tbe western world. The competition for supremacy will be very keen and the lover of flow ers will have a rare opportunity to make a comparison of the merits of the productions of competing growers. Mark Bensitt. BAY STATE AT BUFFALO. Fine Historical Eiblblt Will Be Blade hy Massachusetts. The historic commonwealth of Mas sachusetts will have a most interesting exhibit at tbe Pan-American Exposi tion at Buffalo. It is being collected through the co operation of various societies, such as the Sons of tbe Revolution, Daughters of the Bevolution, Sons of the Ameri can Revolution, Daughters of the Amer ican Revolution, the Society of the War of 1812 and kindred organizations. Tbe chairman of tbe Massachusetts Pan American commission. Mr. Walter Gil man Page, is a leading spirit in these societies and Is anxious that the wealth of historic material possessed by Mas sachusetts should be adequately repre sented at the Pan-American Exposi tion. The matter of a building has not yet been definitely decided, but it is prob able that the old Providence House, which was one of the historic buildings of Boston, will be reproduced as a home for Massachusetts exhibits at tbe Ex- THK PROPYLSA. position in Buffalo. This building was typical in Its style of tbe old fashioned Boston architecture and, in addition, possessed a special Interest from its historic associations. It formerly stood on the Washington street end of Prov idence court, partly on tbe site of what is now Clark's Tavern. One of the members of tbe Massa chusetts commission to the Paris Ex position, who recently returned from tbe French fair, secured there about 450 valuable exhibits, which will be transferred to tbe Pan-American at Buffalo. Ex-Mayor Frederick Fosdick of Fitchburg and City Treasurer E. T. Tifft of Springfield returned recently from a visit of a few days in Buffalo very enthusiastic over the prospects for the success of tbe Exposition and are anxious to hsve tbe good old Bay State well represented there. Bnlldlnas Galas tv. The magnificent buildings which are to house tbe exhibits of the Pan-American Exposition at Buffalo next sum mer are fast progressing toward com pletion and will soon be ready for tbe collections which are on the way from all quarters of tbe American continent. The scene upon tbe grounds of tbe Ex position. In the northern part of tbe city. Including part of the famous Dela ware Park, is a busy one, and every day sees some definite progress made in the construction work. Conditions have been very favorable to rapid work, and the Pan-American Exposi tion bids fair to break tbe record in tbe matter of swift construction of Ex position buildings and their entire com pletion before the time arrives to open the gates to the general public Connecticut nt Pan-American. The state of Connecticut Is getting together a large display that will rep resent her farm, fruit and dairy inter ests at the Pan-American Exposition next year. Benjamin II.
